Konrad's Isle of Jura photography book

Jura Excursions written in stencil

Hopefully I haven't left it too late and there are still some available. But I wanted to wait until I had my own copy before writing about it, which meant going to Jura in November. In case the title hasn't given it away I'm talking about Konrad Borkowski's new book ‘Jura: The Wild Island’, published recently. A truly beautiful book, some amazing photography:

I first heard about the book back in July through Konrad's Facebook page and immediately decided I wanted a copy. When I was on the ferry to Islay two weeks ago it turned out that Konrad was on the ferry as well, returning from a holiday on the continent. A few days later I visited him on Jura, where I joined him and visiting friends on a drive up the only road on Jura and of course picked up my signed copy of the book.

So, what can I say about the book apart from that it is fantastic?

Well, you can preview it on Blurb, then if you like it (which I'm sure you'll do) you can order it via Konrad's website. The book contains 75 pictures of Jura's amazing landscape and wildlife by day and by night, from the ground and from the air. Konrad really understands light and goes to great length to get the right picture. I'm struggling to pick a single favourite, the Rainbow over Beinn Shiantaidh, the Northern Lights at Lagg and a great picture of a White-tailed Eagle are among my favourites. There's so much to choose from.
